040:014:001
At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,


040:014:002
And said unto his servants,
This is John the Baptist;
he is risen from the dead;
and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.


040:014:003
For Herod had laid hold on John,
and bound him,
and put him in prison for Herodias' sake,
his brother Philip's wife.


040:014:004
For John said unto him,
It is not lawful for thee to have her.


040:014:005
And when he would have put him to death,
he feared the multitude,
because they counted him as a prophet.


040:014:006
But when Herod's birthday was kept,
the daughter of Herodias danced before them,
and pleased Herod.


040:014:007
Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.


040:014:008
And she,
being before instructed of her mother,
said,
Give me here John Baptist's head in a charger.


040:014:009
And the king was sorry:
nevertheless for the oath's sake,
and them which sat with him at meat,
he commanded it to be given her.


040:014:010
And he sent,
and beheaded John in the prison.


040:014:011
And his head was brought in a charger,
and given to the damsel:
and she brought it to her mother.


040:014:012
And his disciples came,
and took up the body,
and buried it,
and went and told Jesus.


040:014:013
When Jesus heard of it,
he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart:
and when the people had heard thereof,
they followed him on foot out of the cities.


040:014:014
And Jesus went forth,
and saw a great multitude,
and was moved with compassion toward them,
and he healed their sick.


040:014:015
And when it was evening,
his disciples came to him,
saying,
This is a desert place,
and the time is now past;
send the multitude away,
that they may go into the villages,
and buy themselves victuals.


040:014:016
But Jesus said unto them,
They need not depart;
give ye them to eat.


040:014:017
And they say unto him,
We have here but five loaves,
and two fishes.


040:014:018
He said,
Bring them hither to me.


040:014:019
And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass,
and took the five loaves,
and the two fishes,
and looking up to heaven,
he blessed,
and brake,
and gave the loaves to his disciples,
and the disciples to the multitude.


040:014:020
And they did all eat,
and were filled:
and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.


040:014:021
And they that had eaten were about five thousand men,
beside women and children.


040:014:022
And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship,
and to go before him unto the other side,
while he sent the multitudes away.


040:014:023
And when he had sent the multitudes away,
he went up into a mountain apart to pray:
and when the evening was come,
he was there alone.


040:014:024
But the ship was now in the midst of the sea,
tossed with waves:
for the wind was contrary.


040:014:025
And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them,
walking on the sea.


040:014:026
And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea,
they were troubled,
saying,
It is a spirit;
and they cried out for fear.


040:014:027
But straightway Jesus spake unto them,
saying,
Be of good cheer;
it is I;
be not afraid.


040:014:028
And Peter answered him and said,
Lord,
if it be thou,
bid me come unto thee on the water.


040:014:029
And he said,
Come.
And when Peter was come down out of the ship,
he walked on the water,
to go to Jesus.


040:014:030
But when he saw the wind boisterous,
he was afraid;
and beginning to sink,
he cried,
saying,
Lord,
save me.


040:014:031
And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand,
and caught him,
and said unto him,
O thou of little faith,
wherefore didst thou doubt?


040:014:032
And when they were come into the ship,
the wind ceased.


040:014:033
Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him,
saying,
Of a truth thou art the Son of God.


040:014:034
And when they were gone over,
they came into the land of Gennesaret.


040:014:035
And when the men of that place had knowledge of him,
they sent out into all that country round about,
and brought unto him all that were diseased;


040:014:036
And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment:
and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.
